Fully updated and newly decorated townhome in the heart of St. Augustine Beach. Park your car and relax; the beach is one block away with many restaurants and shops in walking distance. The home decor is all new and the latest in coastal design. With 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, there is plenty of room to accommodate 8 people. There is a very private deck with a large eating area and fire pit. Out front is a sweet porch with chairs for talking to the locals or relaxing after a day at the beach. The kitchen has granite countertops, subway tile and all brand new appliances. It is a corner unit so there are plenty of windows to open to listen to the ocean.

About Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell
My brother, sister in-law and myself wanted to have a place where our family could get together after our parents passed away. We grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, yet as we grew up so did the distance between us. Two years ago we rented a vacation home for a family reunion in St. Augustine. We fell in love with the area and decided to get a place of our own.
Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell purchased this Townhome in 2015
Why Karen, Jim and Ellie Russell chose St Augustine Beach
We spent more than 6 months looking for the right place. We looked at many different condos and homes from on the beach to the many neighborhoods on the island. Nothing caught all of our eyes until we found this property on A Street. It was beautiful, within walking distance to many restaurants, happenings in the area, and especially the beach, and had the space we were hoping for.
What makes this Townhome unique
The benefit of this property is the home itself and the location. You know what they say... Location, location, location. The icing on the cake is that you can catch a shuttle and head into the historic St. Augustine district. You NEVER have to get in your car. The beach is one block away and the city pier (that hosts many fun activities) is only a half mile away.

Life's a Beach at "Beauty & the Beach"!
This was our first experience with VRBO & my wife was apprehensive about what we'd "walk into". I'd say that after spending a month here, the bar is now set pretty high -- a wonderful experience for us. The unit passed my wife's "clean test", it was well maintained & the location was perfect for us...an easy 1 block stroll to the ocean & lots of beach bars & restaurants all within walking distance. Our comfort & convenience was of the utmost importance to Karen. Before we booked the unit, all of my email questions were answered promptly. During our stay, when the coffee machine didn't work, Karen had a new one sent to us from Amazon the next day. The only distraction was the limited "cable" TV. If you're a cable news or sports junkie, you might be disappointed with the network programming from the affiliates in Jacksonville -- just ABC, CBS, NBC & PBS. We will be returning to St. Augustine island in the future & wouldn't hesitate to book Beauty & the Beach again at that time.
Thank you Michael. I must say you were an outstanding guest and are welcomed back anytime. I must let you know that we also have HBO and Netflix.
Great place at a great location!
Location is perfect. We stayed with a group of friends that we reunite with each year, and the others were able to stay at unit right behind us. It’s so unbelievably convenient to bars, restaurants - Publix is 3 minutes away. Miniature Golf is right down the road. The beach is across the street. My son was thrilled that there was a surf shop right on the way to the beach, rented a board for $15 and he surfed for the first time!! The house is very nice, nicely kept and stocked with games, kitchen needs, etc. The only thing we couldn’t find was the tv hookup for digital tv. Fortunately our friend had a Roku stick, otherwise there wouldn’t much tv to watch in our downtime. Overall a wonderful stay!! Highly recommend it.
I wish you had called me. We have a Roku stick in 2 TVs and an Apple TV in the other, we also have Direct TV NOW streamed in with HBO NOW, NETFLIX and Amazon Prime. The guest that came in after you had noticed that the Roku stick had been moved. It is back in place and functioning just fine.
Please, please, please call me if there are any issues. I am always able to fix any problems.
Would not stay again
Property is a perfect location, near beach, restaurants. However there was dirty towels in bedrooms, dirty cloths in closet, large rat on rear deck, very hot in upstairs made it uncomfortable to sleep. Everything was really nice except for cleanliness of property.
I wish this had been brought to my attention during your stay. I have cleaners that come in to do the cleaning. I will have a discussion with them as the dirty towels and cloths are totally unacceptable,
As far as the rat, We have an exterminating service that will also be called.
None of this things have ever been an issue and I will make sure that they never happen again.
To keep the upstairs cool enough for sleeping, I always turn the air down at night to 72 degrees and it does the trick.
Loved this Condo!
We brought 3 teenage boys and lots of friends were staying in the area. The layout was perfect, loved the outdoor space. Great location! We would love to stay again!
Wonderful beach vacation
Karen's townhouse was beautiful and we enjoyed our time in St. Augustine. The townhouse was very spacious and well laid out. The appliances were new and worked well as did the AC and heat (there were a few chilly nights). The beach was about a 5 minute walk and it was an easy drive to shopping, the old town and sightseeing. Karen was extremely helpful when we had questions about anything and was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful time. Karen was very accommodating to our needs. Love how close we were to everything!
Take a shuttle into historic St. Augustine, Florida for a day of sight-seeing, eating, and shopping.
